Description

The highlighting style editor that pops up when one selects Tool -> Editor Options allows the user to set the foreground and background color for text, keyword, comment, documentation comment, string, and number items.

You cannot set the overall background of the editor. If you set the text background to black, only characters that exist have black backgrounds. The overall space is fixed as white and cannot be changed.

If this behavior was changed to use the text background color instead of a hard-coded white background, this would be useful to me. Otherwise it is kind of pointless as a feature.

I don't mind if I have to reload the entire editor after setting the text background color, just so long as I don't have to do it every time. I would appreciate being able to use a black background when coding.

I know I can get this with Visual Studio, but since I have to use PLEditor to compile, that work flow is really inconvenient.
